I got my open hole because my first band director had one, and I thought it was so cool. I just took all the plugs out right away and started playing. I guess that wasn't the best reason to buy open hole. LOL

I wonder whatever happened to my plugs....

I've had my Gemeinhardt 3SB for about 10 years or so. It has NEVER EVER given me one bit of trouble. I've been to All-Region and All-State with this flute, and also gotten music scholarships with it. The most important thing you can do is do a test play on all flutes that you're considering. Take a ...

Oh my gosh, I played this in high school! I was on piccolo then too. Has your band director told you to tone it down?

New member aboard!

I have a Gemeinhardt 3SB. Sterling silver, B foot, open hole. I've had it for over 10 years now and it still sounds just as perfect as it did the day I got it. Before that I had a very yucky Artley that was about dead, but it still gave me 7 years of service and helped me win several awards before I...

One of the favorite pieces when I was in high school was choosing one of G.F. Handel's Seven Sonatas. I played Sonata II in G Minor when I was a freshman, and with a little work, it's completely doable for someone who has had 5 years of training. Sonata II in G Major, starting at the Allegro part wa...
